The Symbol lets you "place a [...] card into your hand" without specifying "from your discard pile".

Now, one could assume a ground rule that burial pile cannot be accessed unless explicitly stated. But. I can't find such a ground rule, and other similar effects on new cards still do specify "from discard", so we cannot even infer it.

So, can Sigraed use this to pull cards from burial?

(Would certainly explain the unusually high focus cost of the effect)

I thought I would be able to quickly peruse the rules and find an answer for your, but you're right - it doesn't seem to specify this anywhere.

Now, at first I thought that Sigraed's Holy Symbol was supposed to be the same as Arani's Holy Symbol from the base game, which specifically states that the card you put into your hand comes from your discard pile. However, Arani's only has a focus cost of one as opposed to Sigraed's having a cost of three.

So I think you may be right. I think it means you can take the card from anywhere in your hero area.

That said, they should have been more specific.
